Pear tart

The classic pear tart is sure to delight us. The making time is only 60 minutes

To make it we need:

  • 200 g wheat flour,
  • a pinch of salt,
  • 40 g powdered sugar – stevia or cane sugar may also be used,
  • 120 g butter,
  • 1 egg yolk,
  • optionally two teaspoons of water.

The filling is:

  • 100 g butter,
  • half a cup of sugar or less if the pears are very sweet,
  • a cup of almonds,
  • 25 g of coconut shavings,
  • 2 eggs,
  • teaspoon of vanilla extract,
  • 3 pears.

Sift the flour through a sieve and add the powdered sugar, salt, egg yolk and chopped butter. Knead the dough with a knife or a pastry chopper. After kneading, wrap it in cling film and put in the fridge for an hour. At this time prepare the pears. Wash, peel and cut into quarters. After the recommended time, remove the dough from the refrigerator and put it into the baking pan lined with baking paper or greased with butter. Bake the cake for about 15 minutes in an oven preheated to 180 degrees. To prevent the bottom from rising too much, weight the cake with beans or peas, laid out on baking paper. After this time, remove the cake from the oven and pour over it previously beaten eggs with almonds, butter and coconut shavings. On this mixture put pear quarters so that their semicircular side is on the dough. Bake the tart at 180 degrees for 30 or 40 minutes. Through the oven glass you can check if the bottom is nicely toasted and the pears are lightly browned. Tart tastes great with whipped cream.
